Canned. Black with a medium-sized and frothy light brown head. Dusty cocoa nose with mild anise, light-roast coffee and earth. Bittersweet chocolate flavor with earthy grains, nutty, dried wheat and a moderate coffee roast and herbal hop zest finishing it up. Fairly light carbonation with a slightly thin mouthfeel, but that’s about the only minor tick against this. Thanks to my dad for seeking out and bringing me back this from South Dakota. The Dakotas should be happy to have this solid locally-made porter available in their states.
